ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Duke City will soon be the destination for thousands of senior athletes.


The national senior games will be held in Albuquerque next year. On Tuesday, Mayor Tim Keller received an official plaque recognizing Albuquerque as the host city.

"This is going to be a big deal for our city," Keller said. "We have an estimated $35 million in economic impact that we are estimating from the senior games. We are going to be using venues all around the city and all around the greater metro area."

To participate in the Senior Games, athletes will have to qualify at the state summer games. Albuquerque will host the qualifiers for New Mexico in July.
